Be Runspirational!

A torn Achilles tendon. That’s basically the root as to where the story begins for  The short story is I didn’t care to run, especially really long distances, until after I tore my Achilles tendon in two places. That was rock bottom. I felt horrible from not even walking for a couple of months. No movement at all can make your body feel extremely terrible.

On my 34th birthday, I was far enough along in my rehab that I was allowed to finally run. I remember thinking to myself, if I can run 5 or 10 minutes that will be huge. I ended up going for 20 minutes on the treadmill. It was a birthday gift from my mind. It served as my first Runspirational moment.

After that, I decided I needed something to train for. I found an 8K, the Ashenfelter Classic, that was close to home. The race was on Thanksgiving morning. It also happened to be one year exactly since my Achilles surgery. I thought, it’s not going to be easy, but I’m going to do this. I’m going to work hard, train my body and mind, and I’m going to finish this race. I did and I beat my goals.

There is more to the story, including a home renovation, birth of my son, new PRs, back surgery, and the decision to take on a half marathon. You can read up on it in the About Me section.

Hopefully, if nothing else, this website will be a part of your Runspirational journey. Just know, I’m rooting for you.
